Oh dear after clearing the bird box out today and firing up the camera there appears to be an issue with the camera somewhere!

What is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch?

The RSPB is hoping that 500,000 people will get involved in their national garden birdwatch event taking place on the 30th/31st January.

Why are they doing it?

The event will record the patterns and numbers of birds visiting gardens around the UK and this data will help the RSPB focus their efforts when it comes to conservation.

Happy new year fellow blue-tit watchers! With the recent snowy spell I’ve not had chance to clear out the birdbox from last year but I do hope to do it this weekend.

I will then put the live bird-cam feed back online and will be adding new posts to this blog about significant events that happen in the bird box over the next 6 months!
